Everybody is so busy these days not enjoying their life. Things get put on the back burner. Ideas get lost in notes. Phone calls go unanswered and texts are unread.

During this pandemic, Adam G. Novicki and I met at his local spot in Reading, PA. I would drive an hour from Allentown to skate this DIY because it’s challenging and what I am into. It was away from everyone. Somewhat secluded. Not driving 10 or 20 minutes to a local skatepark. But an hour. After a session or two, we decided to try and shoot some skate photos. Our mutual interest for the abandoned landscapes, the forgotten buildings and the diy builds, is how
we enjoy our time.

Take some time to search for the unridden, unnoticed and unappreciated spots.

The adventure is endless if you just use your imagination.  – Ray Gurz
